Matt and Steve (aka The Handpicked Shellfish Company) set up in 2001 after spending the previous 3 years Scallop Diving together. They had the then radical idea of providing sustainably caught fish direct to the public. They fish from their day boats out of of Weymouth and dive for shellfish, always observing principles of sustainability.
They have taken very quickly to the FarmDrop concept and embraced all aspects. Matt’s been a bit shy of our photographer, but we hope to track him down on the coast some time very soon.
Their combination of a principled approach and a willingness to innovate, make them a producer for the future. It’s great putting in the order to the guys on their boat. We like our office, but we’re slightly jealous of his. You can follow Handpicked on twitter
and on Facebook
. They supply a beautiful range of seasonal fish at Queen’s Park/Kilburn and Tufnell Park/Kentish Town.
